India post Lockdown

What will life be like when India and the rest of the world lift the lockdown completely? Will life as we knew it before Covid-19 return?

Here are some before and after lessons to be learned.

After being in two long months of lockdown Delhi is back on pace. Delhiites are enjoying the movement and fast life of Delhi is getting back on tracks. Been indoors for more than 2 months Delhiites are back enjoying the movement. Though the corona is not yet down the easing of lockdown has made people think about to resume the previous ongoing life. As lockdown eases people are coming out of their homes to enjoy food, shopping, and going all the way to Murthal on weekends. From evening walks to ice-cream at night, the night lights to sound of traffic jams, Radio's banging in the car to street performances, fests to fairs, slowly and steady everything is restoring.

As the COVID cases are increasing day by day the resources to control and contain it are not sufficing. Everyone is on ease due to unlock and are freely roaming around to enjoy freedom. It seems to people that the lockdown lifted is corona gone. Whereas in reality since lockdown lifted the cases are rising vigorously. Even though wearing of masks, regular sanitisation common surfaces and temperature-screening in public places are made mandatory the cases are still not in contained. The mass spread is increasing and the beds, hospitals and the number of laboratories available for testing are not sufficient.

The lockdown brought the world closer. We adapted to our forced new life in lockdown fairly quickly. We went digital and took to technology, reaching out to the community outside our insular lives. Online streaming platforms were our saviours when it came to entertainment – offering us a range of options. The new mantra of living needs to be adapted. With increasing apps and orders we need to upgrade ourselves to this new life of digital. Online orders should be our new Sarojini and C.P. The work from home and online classes will be our new schools and offices. From Grofers for groceries to Zomato for late nights, adapting and utilizing these new digital resources.
